Our friends at Community First: Impacts of Community Engagement (CFICE) are hosting a webinar titled Evaluating Impact in Community-Campus Engagement: Towards a Community-First Approach.

The webinar will provide an overview of some diverse approaches to capturing and communicating impact within academic institutions and with their community partners. Presenters will reflect on the opportunities and challenges associated with various impact measures, including the possibilities of measuring success through both quantitative and qualitative measures. They will also present recommendations, based on CFICE research, that highlight promising ‘community-first’ practices related to sustaining impactful CCE.
